Yes, this solution better. Can you tell me which projects has this feature? I use DC-API to make server and client applications.


Thanks for changing your method of ending a SAT run!

The method used to end a run is very important to the volunteers.

1) If the answer has been found, and the remaining tasks are not necessary, then yes, ending the run is the right ting to do. There is no point in issuing new work that is not needed.

2) For tasks already issued to volunteer machines, there is a way to cancel *only* those who have not yet started crunching. This is the best way to do it. I know the project gains nothing by letting the "in-process" tasks complete. But the volunteers lose credits rightfully earned for processing time. And those credits cost the project nothing. So this is the right method to use.

3) You asked which projects use the method described in #2. All of them. Very few projects have cause to regularly end a set of tasks prematurely. But any time they do so, they use that method. If you need help to lean how to do so, just ask, either here on the forum or on the BOINC mail list.
